of events with names like the debt ceiling deadline, the fiscal cliff, and the next one is barreling down the tracks. it is called the sequester, but it has nothing to do with a jury. and if it isn't stopped, if it's allowed to go through in ten days, huge automatic spending cuts go into effect. the president used some dire language to warn about it today. and tonight, nbc's john yang explains what this sequester is and the impact it could have for everyone. >> reporter: with no budget deal in sight and automatic spending cuts just days away, president obama said today it was the fault of congressional republicans. >> they haven't come together and done their jobs, and so as a consequence, we've got these automatic, brutal spending cuts. >> reporter: republicans blame the president. >> the president, back in the last session of congress, refused to cut spending in any place. >> reporter: they're fighting over a sequester. washington speak for the $1.2 trillion across-the-board spending cuts that would begin march 1st unless congress and the president agree on a deficit-cutting package. >>

the sequester going into effect. the same thing happened with the debt ceiling fight and the fiscal cliff. you cover congress. why does everything get dragged out to the very last second? >> well, i think you just answered your own question. we're dealing with congress, and congress loves to wait for the last minute. we saw that with the debt ceiling debate from a couple years ago. we saw that with the fiscal cliff issue where we actually went over the cliff for several hours before congress came in, you know, late at night and early in the morning and voted on a deal. this is going to go, once again, up to the wire -- down to the wire, and, you know, some people are even suggesting that the sequester will hit before congress actually acts. >> now, this week we heard that the president has his highest approval rating since 2009. it seems the worst congress looks, the better he looks. how could that affect gun control reforms and immigration reform? >> there was an interesting poll that came out in "usa today" just yesterday showing that largely the american public agrees with the positions tha

ceilings and fiscal cliff, it is obvious we have a weak leader. what is next? we've got four more years. host: thank you for the call. military cutbacks are the focus of this story -- mike is joining us from utica, n.y., on the republican line. caller: they are all cowards and washington. this sequester is never going to happen. the country needs tough medicine. the cowards are led by the cowered in chief, who is dying in side -- inside. he is like a wife spending out there -- they have wives up there instead of men. this is like mediscare. what happened when our bond rating went down? the same thing -- a goal they stop spending, nothing will happen, except they will save the country. -- if they stop spending, nothing will happen, except they will save the country. when they kick the can, they should be ashamed of themselves. it is a shame that they cannot stop the spending. the republicans have obama on the hook. he is the one -- he is dying inside because he is a spender. for him, this is the worst week of his life. they do not even see it. it is ridiculous. they are going to kick the

interesting we run back into the ceiling debt much later and that rolls up into the fiscal cliff 2.0 in how the government tempts to deal with it. so you may ask yourself we have a portion of the tax increases went through and who knows exactly what congress is going to but it's probably a pretty good guess that we get to the very last minute right before the march 1st effective gate date for the spending cuts and then we get some other short-term extension to add to this made for tv drama that they seem so fond of lately and you wonder where does it get us long term and how are we able to close the gap here the congressional budget office has looked at what they consider to be the most likely outcome of the ongoing negotiations which, is a marshal implementation of these spending cuts and what you see here are two lines. the top line is out lace as a percentage of gdp or government spending as a percentage of gdp and starting today and going out through the end of 2022 and this is a forecast for the next nine years and going below that is rather a new as a% of gdp and what you take way h

is under 2% growth. if we don't resolve some of the debt ceiling and some of spending cuts and get into some of the fiscal order that you were talking about, we are going to have that wait on us. and even though you proposed a lot of hope with japan in terms of some of the political leadership, they are still at negative growth was 7%. so now you're up to 50% or so of world gdp that is a drag on the economy. how do you look at the broadest sense of contagion as it relates to emerging market growth, developing country growth with 50% of world gdp possibly in a situation? >> i think the trade figures tell it all. whether you agree with the figure on growth or not. i think the trade figures show what's happening. and there's no doubt picking one of the countries you mentioned, china. i mean, china for the last 20 years has been double-digit growth. last year they had one of the worst years in recent memory. we'll see the final figures coming out. it didn't get below 7%. but when you move from double-digit down to seven something percent, and one of the major drivers of that was their

beginning march 1st. part of the deal made with congress in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. then to find $1.2 trillion over 10 years. nondefense agencies will have to tighten spending by 9%. defense spending will take 13% hit for this fiscal year. some say the affects of the cuts are being exaggerated and some republicans have split opinions. >> there are many ways to do this but the president promised it wouldn't happen. he's the commander-in-chief. and on his watch, we're going to begin to unravel the finest military in the history of the world. >> the pentagon needs a thorough overhaul. i'm a hawk but i'm a cheap hawk. f 35 overrun problem, it is obscene and disgrace full and people will be demanding we fix the system. >> some federal watchers are saying the government agencies are putting out these outrageous cuts, these outrageous worst case scenarios to put public pressure on congress to come up with some sort of a deal. they do say the total amount of the budget cuts only amount to 3% of the federal budget. there's a subtext going on here. think maybe we should let s

and that was the case with the fiscal cliff deal and the previous debt ceiling fights. on the sequester you're not going to see real negative consequences or a lot of americans potentially losing jobs up until early april at the earliest. that's why you're not seeing a lot of movement on this now. >> lynn, this is how one person is spending his congressional recess, senator marco rubio just announced he is going to join israel ahead of secretary of state john kerry, ahead of the president himself. how should we read this? >> first of all it's telling he didn't say he's also going to the west bank, perhaps he is. most often these trips do include that, that he didn't want to mention if indeed what you showed was the release, that's an interesting angle to follow up on. this is what lawmakers do to season themselves, to become experts. is he not seen as necessarily an expert on international affairs right now and this is one of the areas that you go and by the way, if you wonder why a florida senator would be going to israel, it's because it's a major voting body within the state of florida. there's nothi

politicians why they do not do more of it. that is why republicans caved on the debt ceiling. that is why they will cave on some of these other fiscal things going forward. it is up to the voters to make this happen. the politicians just react to the pressures. host: steve mcmahon, a co- founder of purple strategies, and also a media strategist for democratic campaigns. thank you so much for joining us. david winston, a brief thought? guest: if look at what newt gingrich did and bill clinton did, balancing the budget, getting unemployment under four%, bill clinton and newt gingrich laid out that pattern. i wish president obama would engage the house republicans the way bill clinton did. host: david winston, a republican strategist, you can hear his election analysis on cbs news. coming up next, we will look at the executive order the president signed last week with larry clinton of the internet security alliance. then our next guest will be an expert on nuclear weapons, who will talk about which nations have nuclear capabilities. all of that after this break. ♪ >> we have a habit in thi

of the aisle. we had the fiscal cliff, now we have this, we have the debt ceiling deadline in may. there's no dramatic substantive action. it's just one little baby step or kick it down the road and here we are again. and they're playing with people's jobs, money, taxes, livelihoods. our government just seems so dysfunctional and broken and gridlocked. >> and then things like this happen and we go until the 11th hour and oh, a solution but it's not really a solution because we've only done half of the work we should have done. in three months we'll talk about it again and we go through this all over again. just talking about we want to blame both sides and we want to say everybody is responsible. but president obama was up there with the first responders, and some people are questioning whether or not that was a manufactured setup and a scenario where he was like, i'm with these guys, you're the ones that are not able to let this happen and you're going to affect them. but was that necessary is the question? >> all politicians like their backdrops and to put a human face on the issue. fo

ceiling fight coming up again in may. so there's a lot of uncertainty around fiscal policy, around government contracting of all kinds. so it's going to be a sort of rolling snowball effect, i might call it, where it gets bigger and bigger. and by may this may be the only thing we're talking about. >> richard, one could wonder at this point, what was the point of setting the sequester limit if now we're just figuring out ways to come up with a new deal? this was supposed to be the deal. this was supposed to be the thing that forced action. >> right. >> what was the point of it if we're not going to enforce it? >> that's a very good question. what was the point of it? the point of it was that people had crawled out on a limb, and they needed to come off it somehow. the very people who crawled out on that limb are now saying, how did we ever get here? you made me do it. it is ridiculous. and unfortunately, you know, what's that hillary clinton line that she used to use? the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. just in ter
